Problems in Revit Structure.
I have a beam that takes its volume appear on the tag, but this volume is only possible through the properties of the element.
How to solve the problem so that this information appear in tag?

Hi. This is what I have done in this case.

Create a shared instance parameter called Volume in the beam family. Use a formula for that parameter = b x h x L.

Add the shared parameter to your tag formula and place it where needed.



If this solves your problem, please accept as solution.
